McKleinUSA is a manufacturer and supplier
of business cases, computer cases, catalogue cases, backpacks,
luggage, luggage accessories, duffle bags, casual bags, executive
writing pads, and custom requests. McKleinUSA is something
of a revolutionary in the mobile computing and travel goods
industries, with showrooms in the United States and
Thailand. Working with world-renowned brand names and corporations
for over 25 years has provided a significant knowledge base
for understanding the demands of the industry. One of McKlein’s
key advantages is its 220,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art manufacturing
facility in Thailand.
Headquartered in Chicago, McKlein was founded by Parinda
Saetia in 1997 while she was still attending Babson College
in Wellesley, MA. Parinda, who was steeped in the family tradition
of crafting quality cases from her earliest memory, wasn’t
just starting a company; she was continuing a family tradition.
While she attended her final year of college, her brother
Chettha Saetia, a 1996 graduate of Syracuse University, operated
the company while keeping his eye on his dream of designing
cases full time. Parinda assumed daily management responsibilities
upon her graduation in 1998 and Chettha realized his dream
of focusing on design.
The McKleinUSA brand was conceived in 1998. From its inception,
the McKleinUSA brand was marked as an architect of progress
for mobile designs. The first case the brand engineered was
the patented 12295 Wheeled Multiple-Access Computer Catalog
Case. According to Chief Designer and Vice President of McKleinUSA,
Chettha Saetia, the March 1998 Travel Goods Association (TGA)
show in Washington DC first put McKleinUSA on the map. Saetia
chose this show to launch his innovative creation of wheeled
cases for business professionals, at a time when only wheeled
luggage cases were available on the market. Not only was he
the first to introduce wheel business cases to the market,
but he has since designed the largest selection of professional
wheeled cases, in the world, including: business cases, computer
cases, catalogue cases, and back packs.
While wheeled business cases are wonderful for
most situations, they aren’t appropriate for every occasion.
That’s why, in February, 2002 McKleinUSA launched the
Patented, Removable Wheel and Handle System. It featured in The New York Times and recently The Los Angeles
Times raved that it’s “ingenious!” Custom
allow you to completely remove the Wheel and
Handle System from the business case; leaving you with a lightweight,
more compact version of
the business case. It’s essentially
two businesses cases in one, providing more versatility for
mobile professionals than ever before.
Since 1997, aided by her brother Chettha, Chief Designer
and VP of sales, Parinda Saetia has grown a company recognized
for excellence and a progressive brand recognized as the smart
choice for the universal class of mobile professional. The
company has grown into a multi-million dollar company and
McKlein USA is recognized as the precocious architect of design
momentum for the universal class of mobile professional.
Today, Macy's customers buy McKlein 3 to 1 over other
brands and JC Penney, Carson Pirie Scott and other famous
department stores are leveraging McKlein’s reputation
to continue providing quality products and great values to
their customers. McKlein is viable proof that applying intuition,
talent, and respect of time honored quality and service to
modern demands is just one recipe for actualizing dreams.
McKlein confirms that the American dream is more than myth
and seeks to design cases that embody and enable others who
